  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.886 for First Place Nursery Beaconsfield is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.886

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 4.464 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for First Place Nursery Beaconsfield is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 5.6 Target = 0.714

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I find the staff here to be extremely friendly, helpful, very loving and caring to my little boy and would not hesitate in recommending the nursery to anyone. My son has developed day on day with his participation in this nursery. As regards to the staff and management, they are very welcoming and helpful and their communication in terms of his development and general things going on in and around the nursery is excellent.

I viewed two local nurseries before discovering First Place Nursery Beaconsfield, tucked away in beautiful, leafy, Wilton Park. I was instantly impressed with the lovely and extremely approachable manager, who happily cuddled my baby when he put his arms out for cuddles! The staff are all really lovely and clearly very well-qualified; their passion and dedication to early childcare are evident in the manner in which they interact with the children.
The nursery is well-resourced with a stunning garden, including a sensory tree and mud kitchen. My baby was reluctant to move onto 2nd stage weaning, but the staff effortlessly guided him there; the food is healthy and delicious. I can work effectively myself in the knowledge that my little one is being nurtured, educated, guided and given a simply fabulous day at First Place! He's come along in leaps and bounds since joining! Extremely highly recommended!

I was worried about moving my little boy away from the child-minder as he had become very happy there but he settled easily into First Place and is very happy there. I am much happier with the choice of activities, the variety of children and staff and how quickly they understood my little man. It has a lovely atmosphere every time you go in and the outside play area is fabulous! All the staff are kind and caring with the children and let me know what's happened that day!

The team at first place are really welcoming and warm. My son has settled in really well, and it gives me great piece of mind that he is enjoying his time at nursery, interacting with other children, and learning at the same time. The facilities are great, toys and equipment have been well thought out, and the facilities are always well maintained and clean. My child's key worker is great, and we are so pleased our son has settled in so well with her. Thank you guys, we are so happy we chose you!

After searching for over a year for a nursery I finally found one I was happy with. My daughter was the first child to start therefore I was slightly apprehensive not having any prior feedback from parents, however I should not have worried. The staff have been excellent with her (and myself) from day one. It was the first time she had ever been away from me and had suffered with separation anxiety, however the team did all they could to help her settle and within a few weeks we didn't have any tears at drop off. The staff keep me very well informed of her progress every week and have assisted in many areas of her development, including potty training! It has been a great start for her.
My daughter is very fond of her key worker and she is always talking very positively about all the team and her friends.
The nursery is clean, bright and the outside space is fantastic. I have and will continue to recommend First Place to parents.

We've recently moved to the area and I wanted to find a nursery where my daughter will settle in well and be happy. I'm pleased to say I've achieved both. She's very happy, talks about her friends and teachers excitedly and looks forward to attending nursery. I love the outdoor area, I like that it gives the childten a lot of space to play and explore. The staff are very friendly, encouraging and attentive. They take the time to provide feedback on my daughter even on the smallest things. My daughter gets involved in a variety of activities and she loves talking at home about her achievements. The nursery is in my view nuturing and caring.

My son seems very happy and content at this nursery. The staff are really friendly and great with the kids, and the nursery is extremely clean and bright with a huge outdoor area. My son has learnt a lot since he started and has made some great friends too.

Our son was previously in another nursery in the area and joined First Place in July. He is noticeably happier and more settled now, always excited to go in the morning and always happy when we collect him. The staff at First Place are fantastic - attentive and encouraging, but disciplined as well - our son loves to talk about all the things he has done at nursery that day and is clearly learning new things. He has always been a fussy eater but the team at First Place have managed to get him to eat anything, and he takes great pride in finishing his meals! We also like the emphasis on family and friends - we are encouraged to send in photos for the children to discuss and each week we complete a weekend book so they can talk to them about their activities. Our son particularly enjoyed taking his Grandma in on Grandparents' Day! The nursery also has a lovely, safe, free flow outdoor space which our son loves. First Place are also introducing the option to do extra activities, such as sport or music.

I have been extremely pleased with first place and my son thoroughly enjoys going everyday. There is plenty for the children to do each day with a wide variety of activities on offer, and all within a new setting with up to date resources. I have and will continue to recommend this nursery, can not speak highly enough and the staff are all warm and friendly too.

After a long and painful search for a suitable Nursery for my then 15 month old son, I found First Place Nursery in Beaconsfield. It was warm, inviting, colourful and clean, with a great outside area for the children to run around and burn up some energy. The staff were genuinely caring and soon a very real trust grew between myself and the staff team. Age appropriate and stimulating activities are offered to the children and my son always has a big smile on his face when he realises he is attending Nursery on his allocated days. I can't praise the Manager and her team enough, they are always on hand to assist in anyway they can, including organising a recent last minute extra session when I attended hospital. I highly recommend First Place Nursery to parents who are looking for a safe and stimulating environment in which to place their children.
